In 1999, HA introduced Cold-Box systems with shares of silicate-containing solvents to the foundry industry. The Silcure systems are PUCB binders furnished with inorganic solvents. These solvents contain Si compounds in the molecule instead of hydrocarbons. A lower carbon content results in reduced BTX, BTEX and CO2 emissions. This type of systems deliver a low odor and smoke profile during the coremaking and casting process. In North America, these systems could be considered as the ideal bridge between PUCB binders and Inorganic high productivity binder systems (IOB).
- Significantly reduced emissions, fumes and odour during pouring
- High thermal stability
- Very low condensate formation, thus less cleaning effort
- Low gas formation, thus fewer casting defects (scabbing, gas defects, pinholes)
- Very suitable for die casting
